maybe you should go for a phenom ii build with the money you're gonna throw at a q9550 and p45 setup..

I would probably suggets going i5 at the moment if you can find a good deal on the mobo / cpu.

anyway as for the kit you have chosen, firstly yes they will all work / fit together.

to use the full 4gb of ram you need a 64 bit operating system - otherwise you wont see more than 3.1gb

Most of the assembly will be straight forward - plenty of guides on the net, however depending on your pc case neat cabling will be the biggest challenge.

As an owner of a Q9550 and a Q6600, I agree with ulysses. If you are contemplating such a build, go with an i5.

And if you are planning to use a 4890, think about the new 5800's.
